Various - Goosehound [mnlv06]
In addition to a few largely unknown artists from the electronic music scene, Goosehound's compilation also presents some familiar artists already featured on minlove within the past months. The first track, 'Very Vrey Whales', is a collaboration between Tokyo resident Ditch and Goosehound cofounder Nicholas Sauser. After communicating ideas and sharing demos for some time, the two began working on music together. 'Very Vrey Whales' is just one example of their thick, bouncing dance floor creations.
'Noctiluca Falls' was crafted by the duo known as Pocket Pet, comprised of New York's David Last and Osaka's Segeke. Noctiluca is a perfect sampler of the bouncy, futuristic dub techno that will be found on the group's upcoming WeSendIt EP. Next up, we change the tempo a bit to present you with an incredibly lush tune by Morgan Packard. Think of 'Green' as a great slumbering beast with a snore you can move to.
Goosehound pals Wolf and Lamb provide the second song, 'Any Day Now', which was given the remix treatment by Konrad Schierling. Schierling has turned the track into a stomping, bleepy affair complimented by odd vocal meanderings.
Nicholas Sauser closes out the compilation with a stripped down groove entitled 'Of All Of These'. Simplicity is the focus here, but the sound is still full with it's growling bass and scratchy vocal hooks.
